I have WIN2K installed in my m/c. When I try to change the Floder option to "view hideen files and folders - it is reseting to the original value . I have tried the following option as suggested by devil_himself

Navigate to the following registry key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Explorer\Advan ced\Folder\Hidden\SHOWALL

Now right click on,and delete the value "CheckedValue" in the right hand window.

Now create a new "DWORD Value" called exactly CheckedValue in the right hand window.
Double click on CheckedValue.
In the opening 'Edit DWORD Value' box,set the 'Value data:' to 1

Press Ok,exit regedit,restart your pc.

It does not work

Here is my Query.bat and look.bat output
